Belknaps become 100th members
of the foundation's $100 Club
July 1, 2020
The 100th members of the "$100 Club" of the Shenandoah Iowa Education Foundation are Pam & Dr. Marv Belknap, of Shenandoah, both members of the SHS Class of 1965.
They wrote their $100 check in late June after seeing the appeal in our foundation's recently-distributed 2020 newsletter.
The first members of the $100 club, Jolie and Bill LaVere, also of Shenandoah, contributed on Aug. 8, 2018.
So in just under two years, the $100 Club has produced $10,000 for the foundation's good works.
"Education is a gift nobody can take away from you," Marv Belknap said. "For us, it opened a lot of doors and this (donation) was a way to continue it for others." Pam added, "Helping schools is a benefit to the entire community."
You can become a $100 Club member online by using the "DONATE" button at the upper right of this page.

After the Shenandoah High School Class of 1969 gathered during the recent "Shenfest" celebration, the class made a $134 donation to the Shenandoah Iowa Education Foundation.
"We appreciate the foundation's mission and also the hard work the members contribute to accomplish it," wrote Linda Chesshire Haldane, a Class of '69 spokesperson.

Our foundation board votes to start building long-term investments that will help sustain and improve the Shenandoah schools years into the future. We start that with a $300,000 investment – and will now be continually adding more.
